Nokia 2 with 4,100 mAh battery and Snapdragon 212 SoC Launched For €99

 

 

Since it began first announced the Nokia 6 way back in January this year, HMD has added models at almost every price point. The Nokia 8 is its flagship device (at least until the Nokia 9), the Nokia 5 and 6  take care of the mid-range segment, and, up until today, the Nokia 3 was its lowest-specced handset. HMD announced the Nokia 2 a few hours ago, an entry-level phone that boasts 2-days battery life.

 

 

 

 

The Nokia 2’s main claim to fame is the massive 4,100mAh battery which HMD states will keep the Nokia going for 2 days. That’s hugely impressive. Other specs include:
